Single line, tiger loop, no flow.
Hey all, first post here.
I just installed a new Roth tank with a new 3/8id overhead copper line. The line sits 6 inches from the bottom of the tank, and the tank is half full. Tiger loop installed with flex lines. New oil filter has been bled. No interruptions in oil line, so no chance for air leaks.
I can use a siphon pump to pull fuel through the bypass line, which will allow the system to prime, but once the burner turns off it won’t fire back up.
The fuel tank is lower than the burner.
The old setup used A standard 275 gallon tank with a bottom outlet and an identical overhead line with no tiger loop. This was also lower than the burner. I never had a problem with that set up.
Have I burned up my pump or something else in trying to get it primed? It runs great when I force oil into it, but it won’t run otherwise.
Everything is clean and tight, the screen has been cleaned, the filter is new, the lines are new, the tank and oil are new.
I was hoping to make this the first December in 3 years that my furnace wasn’t broken.
Burner is a Beckett afg with genesis controller.
If you all have any advice I’d sincerely appreciate it
Thank you all in advance.
